Parents and pupils interested in attending the proposed school can put their name down now
Plans for the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) to open a senior school have moved a step further after a new funding application for the project was made.
LIPA, set up by Paul McCartney and Mark Featherstone-Witty in 1996, is among a number of applicants for the latest wave of free school funding in a list published by the government last week.
The well-known city institute opened a primary school in 2014 and a sixth form in 2016 – and parents of pupils at those schools were first asked their views on the school opening a senior school in 2017.
At the time LIPA said opening a senior school would allow it to close the gap between its primary and sixth form provision.
